Deep purple-black in color, the 2020 Beausejour (Duffau Lagarrosse) charges out of the glass with bold notions of plum preserves, wild blueberries and boysenberries, plus hints of dark chocolate, molten licorice, lavender and fennel seed, with a waft of Sichuan pepper. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers bags of juicy black and blue fruits with a soft texture and seamless freshness, finishing long and with beautiful purity.

(81% M, 19% CF; 27hl/ha)
Lovely nose; dense, mineral-saturated, fine, discreet black fruit; very full, but not heavy, nicely defined by its acidity; a flavor with a marked mineral element behind the abundant fruit, complex across the palate, with an almost creamy character from the new oak and Merlot combination, then very long to finish. This will make a fine bottle given sufficient time. Like the Larcis Ducasse and the Pavie Macquin the “house” style of winemaking means all the wines have a noticeable tannic structure to them, more than many these days. So, you need to like that per se, or give them a fair amount of bottle-aging. 2032–55+.

Jeff Leve

Inky in color with purple accents, the wine pops from the glass with notes of crushed rocks, flowers, licorice, espresso, plums, cherries, black raspberries and oceanic nuances. Fresh, full-bodied, concentrated and intense, the layers of plush, pure fruits are made even better by its salty tannins and seamless finish that doesn't know when to quit. There is an incredible sense of purity in the fruits that comes through loud and clear in the more than 50 second finish. 97-99

A blend of 81% Merlot and 19% Cabernet Franc, the 2020 Château Beausejour (Duffau-Lagarrosse) should end up being up with the top wines in the appellation. Showing the more straight, focused style of the vintage, it has a monster of a mid-palate, full-bodied richness, building tannins on the palate, and incredible minerality on the finish. Loaded with cassis fruit as well as lead pencil and graphite notes, this dense, powerful beauty almost requires a fork. It’s brilliant all the way and will have 30-40 years of longevity.
